Sepia Saturday give bloggers an opportunity to share their family history and memories through photographs.
Books, studies and statuettes don't feature in my photographic collection, so I am playing it very safe with this prompt, by focusing on the key feature - long hair - or in my examples longish!
By my early teens my hair was long. It was washed and rinsed in rain water or brown vinegar - my mother's idea of beauty treatment and it took ages to dry in front of the fire - no hair dryer to speed the process up. How on earth did the girl in the prompt photograph manage to dry her long locks in winter?
Below is the only photograph I have of me in my teens. You cannot see my pony tail down my back, but what struck me now is how similar the pose and fringe is to my Great Aunt Jennie's (above) some forty years earlier.
